    I like the look of it over a standard Savage.

    Stupid question.....Do you install barrel like you would on a savage action? In essence making this an easy switch barreled Rem 700?

    I like the mount, it's solid, 0 MOA, my Mk4 should cover any MOA needed

    Just curious when you trued the action and you face it off did you indicate off the threads or the bolt raceway. I think I am going to go this route on one of my remingtons.

    Is that a standard Criterion savage prefit? If so than the threads are the same on the Rem as the Savage. Which recoil lug did you use?
